I couldn't be any more fortunate and happy to have these gifted artists and great people transition from being my students in iAnimate to becoming animators on my team at L'Atelier Animation. So proud of them and my entire team for being so passionate and devoted to their craft and our film. Killing it!! :)

Our very talented Feature animation student, Alaa Afifah, shares his thoughts on his time at iAnimate as well as his animation journey. Read his write up below & watch his very entertaining acting chops in his reel.
iA: What is the biggest thing you took away from your time at iAnimate?
Mmmmm I would say there are too many things, but the main thing that I took away with me was to learn how to observe and understanding animation on my own. Because the tools and the criticism that I had been given by my instructors, has given me all that I need to continue my career on my own.
iA: What is the most surprising thing you have learned while in the "studio life"?
I would say every new project I get to learn something new, there is always a challenge to get the idea across. But the greatest thing I have acquired is Speed!

Our friend over at Animators Resource recently posted his video interview with our very own David Hubert & Darryl Purdy. They chatted about the challenges they have both in film and games, and then Darryl does a quick breakdown of how he approaches some of his creature animation. Thank you JP for the interview.

When it comes to our characters, we seek to bring the highest quality, varied, and unique line up not found any where else. In May we announced a new rig that will be ready for our Summer 2015 session students and alumni. We've made some look development tweaks to that rig...meet Monty & Molly! We can't wait to see what animations our talented students & alumni produce with these characters!

I am super proud of all my animation crew and especially my iAnimate students hitting the ground running. Proof that all the hard work they put into their workshops paid off. Why do we hire iAnimate students? The reason is super simple, they prove time and time again that they know how to animate, can work as a team, address notes super quickly, and have no ego. Coming to work with these guys everyday makes me very proud, keep up the great work everyone. You are representing yourselves very well.
